With the heart of a true Gladiator, Terry Devine went down swinging on December 12, 2020, surrounded by his loved ones.
Terry was born on June 22, 1944, the third of six children, to Fritz and Edna Devine. He grew up in Fowlerville with his siblings, Jim, Fred, Karen, Kathleen, and Pat, where he remained a fixture in the community throughout all his days.
Terry married the love of his life and his best friend, Jamie Harmon in 1973 and together they raised 4 children: Reggie (Tina), Cheryl (Rod/Bob), Terry (Michelle), and Erin (Dan) who will forever adore him. He had unconditional love for his grandchildren: Micheal, Whitney, Brie (Joe), Chris (Ashley), Kyleigh, Daniel, Jon, and Eli, as well as for his great-grandchildren, siblings, nephews, nieces, and his non-biological sons, Duane and Mark. Terry left beautiful memories with anyone and everyone he encountered.
Terry was undeniably the best of the best. The best husband, the best dad, the best friend, the best grandfather, brother, and uncle. He’s always been an incredibly devoted family man, the man you could count on. Terry Devine was the hardest working man you’d ever meet. He was a Union Carpenter for 50 years and took great pride in the work he did. An always charming and gregarious man, he had an almost magically contagious positivity. You’d never find him too far from his families events, for he’s always been everyone's number one fan. If not there, you’d find him watching anything with a ball or a puck, channeling his passion for life by rooting on his teams to victory.
Sparks flew not only during his many years as a firefighter, but also in his many adventures with Jamie. His family and friends will forever cherish each moment and good time they shared with him. Terry’s light will shine on in our hearts for the rest of our days, along with the warmth, wit, and kindness that he shared so easily.
